Custom Dog Portrait
Pet Portrait Commissions are currently CLOSED. Commissions will re-open sometime FALL 2023. If you'd like to join the fall waitlist, you can fill out the form at the bottom of the page. Thank you!
So you're interested in a custom dog portrait!? Below is everything you need to know before requesting to start the project. Please read thoroughly as I have two options / styles for dog/pet portraits. Although I love my unique take on a pet portrait, I still value and love creating art in the more traditional ways. If the first description doesn't suit your needs, please know I will happily create an acrylic painting on canvas - a more traditional approach, to fulfill your desires for a pet portrait that will look lovely in your home.
Sarah's Unique Style:
Sarah creates her custom pup portraits in her own unique mixed media style! Each piece is created on a wood panel using wood, acrylic paint, spray paint and resin. Glitter can be added into the resin if desired too!

For custom portraits, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required to start the project with Sarah. Sarah uses this to gather all the supplies for the project and start collaborating with you!
Sarah requires a well lit portrait style photo of your pet to start. She draws the silhouette or outline of the dog onto a piece of wood that she then cuts out using a scroll saw. Once cut out, she's able to sand and prime the wood and then paint your pup using acrylic paints. Once the pup is complete, she places it onto a wood panel that she has painted with spray paint, glues it down, and then pours a clear coat of resin over the entire piece. If you would like a little sparkle in your resin, Sarah can add a touch of glitter into it! If you'd like to see a video of the process, you can find process videos on her instagram account, Sarah.rimboch
If you have read through everything and would like to start working with Sarah, please fill out the order form below and she will contact you as soon as possible. Reminder that these are created solely by Sarah and she does not have a team helping her. So depending on her work load, custom portraits can take anywhere between 3-8 weeks.
Things you'll need or need to decide:
Photo of your pup (Sarah will get this from you later)
What size painting?

Looking for the more traditional pet portrait? You can still fill out the box below Please mention "acrylic only" if you are wanting a more traditional painting that DOES NOT include resin. Happy to accommodate each and every one of you!
